The Revive Yoga Retreats are designed specifically with pure relaxation in mind. A long weekend where time stands still, schedules don’t exist. Where nourishment of the body, heart and mind is the intention. Where luxurious surroundings and the gentle peace of nature, nourish you. We bring together experts in their fields to ensure an experience that is full of ease and grace, where free time is honoured.

Intentional Eating

Our food is designed by chef Simon Favorito of Your Conscious Kitchen  - he and his team deliver an alchemy of food crafted to be incredibly nourishing, taking into account the seasonal organic produce, the intention of the retreat itself and of course, catered for your individual dietary needs.


The Venue

Held at the quietly luxurious, Awaba Retreat - our retreat house feels like home. Spacious and contemporary, surrounded by nature and situated in a hidden valley, your worries literally dissolve as you drive into the 22 acre property. With a heavenly hot outdoor shower and swimming pool to dip into for those who are game, on a crisp clear sunny day,  Awaba Retreat is designed perfectly for chasing the sun, book in hand. Naps are encouraged here, whether taken in the hammock or on the generous day bed or perhaps the outdoor beanbags….soak up the sun and let nature nurture. Intentionally kept to small numbers to ensure a personal and private experience, only 13 participants per retreat.

AWABA RETREAT 44 Fern Tree Lane, Palmdale, via Ourimbah, Central Coast NSW.

Q. I have a dietary requirement - can I still come on the retreat?

A. Of course we will ensure your dietary requirements are met!  Simon and his team are incredibly mindful around this and we truly understand that getting this right means you can relax! Let us know at the time of booking.

Q. What do I need to bring?

A. Apart from yourself - very little else! The retreat space has mats, bolsters, blocks and straps and many other props besides, so no need worry there! By all means,  you are more than welcome to bring your own mat and props if you prefer practicing on your own equipment!

Awaba Retreat is a eco friendly environment and will supply all bedding and towels and pool towels!

Please DO BRING:

  • A water bottle! This ensures that you are able to have water in the yoga shala but will also help us reduce energy wastage through the continual washing of cups!

  • Ear plugs are also a good addition if you are sharing a room and know you are a light sleeper!

  • Swimmers and a good book - just cause its all about the relaxation and the unplug and you will have plenty of time to be doing just that!

  • Walking shoes if you fancy a ramble around the surrounding countryside or up the hill through the bushland!

Q. When will I see the itinerary?

A. We intentionally withhold the itinerary in the spirit of assisting the process of descheduling! By allowing yourself to let go of needing to know the time, we foster an experience of timelessness. Let  us worry about the time, and let yourself simply go with the flow! In this way you are able to really listen to what you need in any moment - nothing is compulsory on this retreat - so you can simply be where you want to be!
